VERSES TO MR. C, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Few words are best; I wish you well
Last Line: Want nothing else, except your wife.
Subject(s): Cleland, William (1673-1741)


ST. JAMES'S PLACE. LONDON, OCTOBER 22

Few words are best; I wish you well:
Bethel, I'm told, will soon be here:
Some morning-walks along the Mall,
And evening-friends will end the year.

If, in this interval, between
The falling leaf and coming frost,
You please to see, on Twit'nam green,
Your friend, your poet, and your host;

For three whole days you here may rest
From office, business, news, and strife:
And (what most folks would think a jest)
Want nothing else, except your wife.
